General Anesthesia is sometimes necessary for children that are unable, by either age or maturity level, to cooperate during dental treatment. These cases are done on an outpatient basis at our affiliate Franklin Square Hospital.
General Anesthesia is most helpful for:
- Children who require major treatment.
- A very anxious child.
- Children that have had traumatic dental experiences (sound and smell aversion).
- Children with a strong gag reflex.
- Children who are medically compromised or have special needs.
Our doctors and staff will discuss all treatment options with you and make recommendations as to what is the best modality to treat your child while keeping them safe and comfortable.
